Webinar: Perspectives on Positive Youth Development

YouthPower Learning

Positive Youth Development (PYD) is a guiding principle of USAID’s Youth in Development Policy. Both a philosophy and an approach, it is a paradigm shift in how we understand young people and how we provide youth services. But what exactly is PYD? How does it differ from traditional approaches to youth development? In what ways can you integrate PYD strategies into your own youth programming to improve outcomes in academic achievement, workforce readiness, positive health behaviors, increased civic engagement, and violence prevention? PYD experts Dr. George Patton (Professor of Adolescent Health Research University of Melbourne and Chair of the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing) and Kristin Brady (Director of FHI 360 Youth Department and USAID YouthPower Action) answer these questions and more during this one-hour webinar hosted by USAID YouthPower Learning, a project implemented by Making Cents International.
